Over the next month or so, I will be posting birds that need new zip codes. No shipping. I will deliver to the Ohio National in November or they can be picked up at the farm in SC. All are 2022 and have ABA bands on. A 50% deposit is required to reserve birds. The pics today are an example of what’s going to be available. I will post single pics once the birds get more color or I can pick the birds for you. Please contact me via messenger.

Last post of the day. I spent the morning cleaning my barn and looking for the🐍 that thinks it has taken up residence in the building. I know we all have our opinions, but I can assure you that it is consuming eggs and not mice. I have been using this bucket topper for my mouse problem. I highly recommend it. It is cheaply made, and you have to be careful putting it together. It works!! I didn’t know there were so many🐭

My fun color. I bought a quad of black and blue bibbed birds last year. I wish this little cockerel had a better bib, but I’ll take the type. Keeper for sure. The pullets didn’t cooperate very well. However, they have better bibs, and there are some silvers.

I really like these 3 birds. The little cockerel is one of the nicest males I’ve hatched in a long time. My birds are more of a hen line. He will be going back up in a hutch soon. Always look at your birds from the top, it can make decisions a lot easier when sorting. I sold a lot of butters last year. If you bought birds from me please let them mature. Heads and color will continue to evolve long after your other birds are done.

Box of day old babies. Excited to be back into bibbed birds. There is a little silver in there somewhere. One of the butters is from my 10 year old hen. She only laid 6 eggs this year. Hoping the 2 remaining eggs hatch next week.

I will be at the Anderson Bantam Show on February 12th. I’ve decided to make more room for my 2022 hatch. These are birds that I originally decided to keep. Birds are breeder quality and are in breeder condition. Drakes are a little scruffy. They have been in ground pens sorted by color since November. Feed is 22% layer that has animal proteins. Just starting to lay. I haven’t picked the exact birds yet, so no pics today.

Butterscotch 1 to 2 pairs
Snowy-1 Curtis Oaks drake one F1 gray cross hen
White-1 to 2 females
Gray-1 drake
Pairs of self blue and porcelain d’Anvers/extra cockerels

Great opportunity to breed your own calls this year. $$ accordingly. Message me for questions.

Had a great time at the Ohio National. Caught up with old friends and met some new ones. I showed gray and butterscotch calls and had 8 of 10 place. This Butterscotch pullet placed 1st. Her color continues to change, and she has great type. Congratulations to all the winners.

Thank you to my husband for taking care of my birds, goats, and cats while I was gone. And for his continued support. There was no evidence of the back hoe being used-so all the geriatric birds and goats survived😂.

This pullet was initially in my sales pen. I pulled her out about 3 weeks ago. She was extremely light in color and only had one eye stripe. I keep forgetting that my butters are slow in maturing compared to the other colors.

Several pairs looking for new zip codes. Will deliver to shows I attend. No shipping.

It’s the year of the gray call. I didn’t have enough room in my hutches, so they remained in a community ground pen. Seven hens and three drakes. Fertility was great. I like these birds more and more as they mature.

It’s a beautiful Easter Day in South Carolina. Spring is here. First hatch of calls yesterday, and first Porcelain D’Anver hatch last week. Waiting for egg production and fertility to improve in some of the pens.

This years butterscotch hatch. Three decent pullets that will be line bred with their uncle. The cockerel will be put with his mother and aunts. Type, eye stripes, and the cockerel head color are much improved. The pullet in the first pic was BV in the white card show in Anderson, SC.

We had a great time at the Anderson,SC show yesterday. This show is growing and has moved into a bigger facility. Thank you to everyone involved.

It was good to see old friends and make some new ones.

Anyone that breeds butters knows quality birds are hard to find. I ran out of genetics in my birds probably 10 years ago. I purchased some inferior birds and basically ruined my line. Dennis gave me a drake that I didn’t have much success with. So I thought long and hard about giving up on them. This is year 2 of my butter experiment. These hens will go back to their uncle which is the one remaking drake from my line. I’m thrilled with the start of my new line.

This may be the last year for my butters. I just haven’t been happy with them. I plan to switch drakes mid season to maximize my options.

Two quads and a trio of whites. I was able to purchase one new drake last fall. The bigger drakes have 3 hens each. I’m hoping for good fertility. If not I’ll have to take a hen out. I don’t have any extra drakes.
